The Pharaoh's Daughter

This book is the second book about Isabelle Webb, I could tell that I should have reread the first one before starting this book, because I had a really hard time remembering the first book at all. Anyway, if you can't tell from the cover this book takes place in Egypt, but I really wasn't sure what time period as I read the book. I thought from some of the things they said that it was supposed to be awhile ago, but I wasn't quite sure when. They did talk about the girls wearing corsets, but that was later on in the book. Anyway, Isabelle, her kind of boyfriend, James and his brother Phillip are looking for some girls who were kidnapped in India. One of them is Isabelle's ward Sally, the other is a girl who doesn't yet know she's an orphan named Alice. What they don't know is that their enemy is already in Egypt. He's looking for a special stone called the Jewel of Zeus, which only people with a special birthmark are supposed to be able to find, which Phillip has. This birthmark looks like a star and burns and itches when the person is in close proximity to the stone. What he doesn't know is that Isabelle and James already have found it. None of them know that Alice carries the birthmark also. They set off on an expedition to dig for an Egyptian tomb, they all feel that this is the chance of a lifetime, little do they know, it may be the end of their lifetime. I enjoyed this book, I would definitely recommend reading the first one, Legend of the Jewel, first!

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …
